Is that a Zero or a P-40?
I picked up a vhs version of this today, bundled with another Ronald Reagon short film entitled 'For God & Country' (also available here). In 'Jap Zero' Reagan stars as a youthfull pilot who almost shoots down one of ours. Being an Army information film, made with the specific intention of describing the differences between the American P-40 airplane amd the Japanese Zero, its appeal today is more limited.
